As the 2014-2015 school year draws to a close and West Morris confidently bids farewell to another class of students, The Paw is excited to present the graduating class with a commemorative collection of parting remarks from Central’s proud educators and faculty.

Class of 2015, you will be missed—this is palpable proof in case you don’t believe us.


IB Business and Management – Period 4 – What a great class! Thanks for all your enthusiasm and hard work this entire year! Best of luck to all you seniors going off to college…. and juniors – see you next year in the halls! Have a wonderful summer!!

-Mrs. Pollison

To the inspired and inspiring group of Theatre 1-2 seniors, Kevin, Lizzie, Julia, Lina, Rob, Jenniece, Megan, Lexi, Danny, and Max, thank you.  Thank you for being open, for taking risks, for sharing of yourselves, and for keeping our Theatre 1-2 family alive.  Bill T. Jones, creator of our lifeline project, once said during an interview, “I said, look, artists are – this is not so flattering – we’re the earthworms.  We oftentimes go into difficult social situations and because of this kind of doggedness and this belief in something, artists can turn an old broken down building into an art center.  And then after we’ve been there for a while, the restaurants show up, the coffee shops…You should invest in us, those of you who control the purse strings, because we are the earthworms.  We break up that dried up, pounded down soil so that things can grow.”  When you find yourself limited in opportunity, break up that soil, create something new, and make it grow.

With love and so much appreciation, Mrs. Charych

West Morris Graduates, As you leave West Morris and go singing and dancing into your future (picture bunnies bobbing their heads by the side of the road and blue birds flying with brightly colored ribbons held in their beaks as you go under a rainbow), remember what you learned in class that you need in “real life”:

  1. Start saving for your retirement immediately and you will be a millionaire one day.
  2. Life is like a sine curve, the highs are followed by lows which are followed by highs. Enjoy the ride. The highs are fun, but there is more to be learned from the lows. Hang in there during the lows, the highs will always return!
  3. Don’t forget to appreciate the people who help you along the way. Thank often; apologize as needed. Remember that we are all struggling with something, so a kind word carries more power than a criticism and your smile can encourage someone else to try again.

With love and gratitude, Ms. Hannas

To Our Period 7 Shrubs– We are very proud of all you’ve accomplished this year. We can’t wait to hear about your adventures outside the walls of WMC. Remember to laugh at yourself when things get tough and embrace your inner old man, little kid, or confident persona when appropriate. We will miss you!

-Mrs. Cangemi & Dr. Wright

Dear Class of 2015, You will always hold a special place in my heart, and I will cherish our times together. It has been a joy to watch you grow over these past four years. THANK YOU to my dear Algebra and Geometry students, my Math Resource Center regulars, and the amazing students I’ve worked with in the musical. You are all so wonderful, and I wish you so much happiness in the future!

With love, Ms. Harrington

To All My Seniors-We have had a great run—may the rest of your Journey be as exciting.

-Ms. Gonzalez

To the Yearbook Editors – It has been an incredible few years watching all of you grow into the wonderful young adults you have become.  I look forward to hearing about all of your accomplishments and milestones in the coming years.  Thank you for your hard work and dedication to our yearbook.  You will certainly be missed but you will always be D119 residents!!  Best of luck!!

-Mrs. Fabin

Dear Post Secondary Planning Seniors- Remember all you learned, accomplished and heard in PSP this year!  There will be challenges along the way but you have the tools and support to accomplish great things for yourself. Always be grateful for what you have and ask for help when you need it!  Keep in touch next year and remember “Beautiful Oops”!

All the best- Ms. Mongey

Senior Central Theatre Thespians – Watching you grow into your own not just as performers and players of theatre, but also as young men and women has been an honor and a pleasure. And watching you leave will be the hardest part of all. But to go back to Children of Eden, “You cannot close the acorn once the oak begins to grow. And you cannot close your heart to what it fears and needs to know. That the hardest part of love is letting go.” As hard as it is to watch you leave, the time is right. You’ve blossomed in ways that expand your stage far and beyond the limitations of the West Morris Central proscenium. Just remember: “Your heart knows all things great and true . . . Follow your heart.” Finally, on days when you feel alone or troubled by life’s obstacles, “look to the sky.” It helps to think that we will always be united under the same bright stars.

Jenniece, Kevin, Libby, Scott, the original four of my inaugural class of Central Theatre students. You’ve been with me since the very beginning–in fall dramas, spring musicals, and drama classes. I cannot imagine continuing this program without your guiding lights. Continue to light a fire wherever you go. You are the spark of creation.

-Mr. Hogan

To My Senior Paw Staff Members and Editors: Thank you for a year of great reporting and wonderful memories. You are the reason we have an up and coming news broadcast, an exceptional website, an award-winning paper, and (almost) a class fish. I cannot wait to hear about all of the wonderful things you are about to accomplish! I miss you already!

-Dr. Wright

Mes Chers Seniors (mes biches) : Que vos chapitres futurs soient pleins de joie, succès et aventure…

-Mademoiselle Larsen

2015 senior tennis players: Maddy, Appy, Casey, Janet, Julie, Lexi, Ellie, Gavin, Ryan, Danny, Gavin, Dom and Vish:  may your future chapters be full of joy, success and adventure…

-Coach Larsen

Mis queridos alumnos de español, Les agradezco el honor verdadero de acompañarles por un tramo de su travesía escolar. Su inteligencia, sentido de humor e integridad siempre me han maravillado. Y, les dejo con estas citas:                                                                                                                                      “Si sólo hablásemos cuando tenemos algo que decir, el uso del lenguaje desaparecería en dos generaciones.” (Isabel Allende)                                                                                                                          “La vida es un relámpago entre dos largas noches.” (Amado Nervo)                                                          ¡Que gocen de esta luminosa vida extraordinaria!

¡Enhorabuena! Sra. Lynch

To the Advanced Placement Biology Class: Your publication of original research is the highest accomplishment in all of science! You have already proven that live Christmas trees carry mold that causes allergy symptoms—now I can’t wait to see what else you discover!

Best of luck from your teacher, Mrs. Gizas

To the Tr“IB”e! We made it! You have all made me so proud. Thank you.

-Ms. Gonzalez


On behalf of the entire West Morris community, The Paw staff wishes all of the graduating seniors the best in the future. We already miss you!
